Default 97 silverado, 4l60e 3rd to 2nd gear downshift issue

Hi, new here, but been dealing with this minor issue for a while now, think its time to finally knock it out. In a typical day driving, everything else is perfect shifting, except for if say i were doing 55, and came close to WOT to pass, it downshifts to 3rd gear just fine, but when it goes for second, the trans does not engage and acts like it is in neutral until i let off the gas (no i do not let it redline) and this is typically followed by a "clunk" into gear when the rpms reach about 2,000. It may be a mind game, but since i found the issue, it may be shifting slightly harder from 2nd to 3rd under normal acceleration, but that could just be me. From what i read, im thinking to replace TPS or the 2-3 gear shift solenoid. Has had regular fluid changes as well. Thanks in advance, any more info needed, let me know.
